“This new multimillion dollar renovation and rebranding will create an iconic entertainment environment offering, ‘everything you go out for,’” Howard Blank, who is vice president of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, stated. “We look forward to presenting the very best of gaming, music, fun and dining at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver; everyone will be treated like a rock star, whether you are 19 or 99.”
“Hard Rock Casino is one of the most globally recognized entertainment brands in the world,” Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas chief operating officer Jody Lake added. “The expansion of the Hard Rock into the Vancouver area is an important milestone for us.”
The casino will span 80,000 square feet and include 950 slot machines, a VIP high-limit salon, and tables for blackjack, roulette, pai gow, poker, baccarat, and craps.
The venue will also house a 1,000-seat theatre dedicated to music and comedy performances. A second entertainment area will feature live music and DJs. Seven dining spots, including three bar-lounges, will be included.
